    I never used to wear any makeup besides mascara until I tried Bare Minerals. Now I'm hooked :) Unfortunately, I'm all out, and my next shipment will be another 2 weeks!

    Share your drugstore foundation suggestions please? I think I'm going to buy something to get me through.

    Do you have a Sephora around? I think they sell Bare Minerals or something similar

    For drugstore brands, I use Loreal Mineral Powder foundation. But Bare Minerals is readily accessible in stores around me- Ulta, Sephora, specialty beauty shops, etc.

    On the weekends I sometimes use Revlon Stay True mineral powder, and I've used the Maybelline brand which goes on nicely too. Neither of those has the shine of Bare Minerals.

    I've heard a lot of people like Physicians Formula mineral wear. I actually picked some up yesterday. They are much cheaper than bare minerals (I'm a loyal user too), so I'll continue to use it and see if I like it. So far, so good.

    It's too bad I don't have a Sephora near me. I think I'll give the L'Oreal one a shot and see.

    I have tried Bare Minerals. Sometimes, I'd just use the warmth one, but just use a tiny speck and swirl the brush around!

    I like the Almay compact powder after I put lotion on for the day.

    I really hate that Warmth stuff. No matter how little I use I always look a little orange.

    If you call them, they'll be happy to bump up the shipment to avoid your order being caught in the holiday mailing crunch. The CSRs are really nice folks!

    That's exactly what I thought, but when I emailed customer service I was told I had missed the shipment deadline. Weird.

    Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Mineral Powder is wonderful! I highly recommend it.
